Hi Simon

I agree that this is not quite a bug. I believed I had classified it as a wish,
not a bug, but I may have failed.
It is good that the picture helped you understand.
Here is a further explaination on why I found it confusing.
When I add names to the automatically selected rectangles with detected faces
after running face detection I simly chose the people tag, and then I worked in
the thumbnail view. If a picture had a face which I already had given a name
this name would appear below the thumbnail of someone elses face.
It is not a big problem, but it is confusing. 
Especially as I ended up in the thumnail mode without choosing this actively.

It is more confusing when I have only chosen the people tag, than when I
already have chosen one particular name to look at.

In the "preview image" mode it works perfectly when I let it "Show Face Tags".

So again, I agree that this is not a bug, but I am still of the opinion that
the interface could be further improved when the people tags is chosen and we
are in the thumbnail mode. It is a thumbnail of the marked face which is shown,
not a thumbnail of the picture.
